lady-hawkeye asked: You have inspired me to write a fanfiction based on that Royai quote, with your permission~
I would LOVE that! I honestly can’t believe that so many people were inspired by this - I should have shared it sooner! By all means, you have not only my permission, but my request!
This was inspired by kelenloth’s royai headcanon, and quoted with permission.
It was all done with the utmost care and precaution. However symbolic and significant the act might be, it was nothing to rush into unprepared. Roy had made enough mistakes to last him a lifetime; he would not take any risks and make a new one.
They waited. She stayed at his apartment while she could - she had not yet told him of her request to transfer to his command - and Roy spent three weeks on the research. As many thousands of burns he had inflicted, not once had he had to deal with damage control.
The Flame Alchemist knew nothing of healing.
OH MY GOSH I LOVE THIS SO MUCH. (Also, btw, thank you for making this “T” (by ff.net standards) and not “M”. I had intended to specifically ask that this story not contain any smut or anything but I forgot. So thanks for that.)
AAAAAAAHHHH!!!!! Thankyouthankyouthankyou! I love it. I’ve read a few different versions of.. THAT scene..(on the one with the quote, the one before it) and I’ve been meaning to write one myself. But yours is REALLY good. It’s actually one of the best I’ve read. I could comment about so much on this story, but mostly just… thank you! - I love what you did with the quote. The idea that Riza never had any intention of showing her tattoo to anyone else (even if he did destroy it, she never showed it to anyone else). That is what I wanted to communicate. There is a beauty and purity to Riza’s loyalty.
Also, I never imagined Riza proposing to Roy, but I like it!
